Download Stratabound Ore Deposits in the Andes (Special Publication of the Society for Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits, No 8) epub
by L. Fontbote
Stratabound ore deposits, including some of the classic types known worldwide, constitute an important group in the Andes, also from an economic point of view. This state-of-the-art report contains three types of contributions. - Three reviews on general Andean geological and metallogenetic aspects, and an overview of the stratabound ore deposits in the Andes, emphasizing their geotecto nic position as a classification tool. - 53 contributions describing individual ore deposits and dist ricts. They are organized according to the geotectonic position of the host rock, and, within each group, from north to south. - Comparative geochemical and isoto pic aspects on the possible metal sources of stratabound ore deposits in the Andes. Two appendices contain information on main characteristics of several hundred ore deposits and occurrences. This information is included in printed lists of a data base as well as in a foldout with three color maps (1:10.000.000) in which the most representative stratabound ore deposits have been plotted in their geological and paleogeographical framework. Comprehensive mine and subject indices allow the retrieval of a large amount of detailed information which is of interest not only in metallogeny but also in regional geology.
